Re: Comments 17 Vs 17LT
Posted by Ingrid H on Feb 16, 2007
My standard Ches. 17 is very hard to control in hard winds especially when the wind is at my back. She keeps wanting to go broadside to the wind. I'm thinking about installing a retractable skeg for these conditions. Other than that, I love my boat. I guess I never really realized how much more "sail" area there is to a 17 vs 17LT. Thanks Laszlo! Oh yeah, and Brett, I liked your tandem picture! I laughed when I first saw it because the wheels on the aft deck looked so funny, but then I thought, "What a great idea carrying along your 'yak cart!" Bringing along the cart must make camping SO much easier.
